​​Needs Assessment

​Needs Assessment is a systematic process used to profile population needs, resources, and readiness. This process includes the review and collection of community-level data.

Data-driven decision-making and planning will help ensure that appropriate issues are targeted and that the appropriate target, geographic area, and/or population are identified.

For help in this section we have many resources including the Needs Assessment workbook and online training, sample community and parent surveys as well as information on the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS):
